  • vanilla-lazyload

    LazyLoad is a lightweight, flexible script that speeds up your website by deferring the loading of your below-the-fold images, backgrounds, videos, iframes and scripts to when they will enter the viewport. Written in plain "vanilla" JavaScript, it leverages IntersectionObserver, supports responsive images and enables native lazy loading.

    Project mention: Chrome's next weapon in the War on Ad Blockers: Slower extension updates | | 2023-12-01

    > Manifest V3 will stop this by limiting what Google describes "remotely hosted code." All updates, even to benign things like a filtering list, will need to happen through full extension updates through the Chrome Web Store. They will all be subject to Chrome Web Store reviews process, and that comes with a significant time delay.

    So the author can't think of any other reason for this change other than to "slow down ad blocker updates"

    Well how about stuff like this:

    Where an extension dev details offers to "monetize" his app and basically perform a bait and switch and make it malicious.

    Project mention: AI beats human sleuth at finding problematic images in research papers | | 2023-10-04

    I guess they had a system that required humans to confirm the validity or so.

    I had a similar problem when I realized someone put up CSAM (Children sexual abuse material) on my public demo of my CDN called PictShare [1].

    I didn't want to look through all of these images so I built a Raspberry Pi with a Neural compute stick [2] that used an AI model trained by yahoo to filter out "nudity" images and I put them in an encrypted ZIP file along with the access logs and sent them to Interpol.

    This lead to the arrest of a teacher here in Austria so I'm glad I could do my part.

    This even lead to a BBC article about my system [3]

    Project mention: A better compact image placeholder hash | | 2023-03-22

    I open sourced a version of what Evan calls the "webp potato hash" awhile back:

    I generally prefer using webp to BlurHash or this version of ThumbHash because it's natively supported and decoded by browsers – as opposed to requiring custom decoding logic which will generally lock up the main thread.
